Everything we have on this earth is a gift from God. Including our memories. Memories allow us to capture and reflect upon all the goodness the Lord has bestowed on us. Precious blessings. Needed provision. Sometimes small, answered prayers. At other times, unimaginable miracles. God wants us to remember all the ways he has blessed us. Our personal miracles as well as those for all mankind. God instructed the Jews to remember the miraculous parting of the Red Sea. All Christians are to remember the Resurrection - God’s intervention into death to assure us of eternal life. And while sometimes memory doesn’t feel like a gift from God, it is! Remembering painful situations can be difficult. But there is always a purpose to our pain. And that purpose usually involves making us like Jesus. Our increased reliance on God. Remember a time God did a miracle for you. Remember something good that happened. A time in which God came through for you. Keep remembering it. Feel his warmth flood over you. It’s a great feeling. And remember: If God did it once, he can do it again. For memory is a gift from God.
